A terbium-sensitized spectrofluorimetric method using an anionic surfactant, sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate (SDBS), was developed for the determination of gatifloxacin (GFLX). A coordination complex system of GFLX-Tb(3+)-SDBS was studied. It was found that SDBS significantly enhanced the fluorescence intensity of the complex (about 11-fold). Optimal experimental conditions were determined as follows: excitation and emission wavelengths of 331 and 547nm, pH 7.0, 2.0x10(-4)moll(-1) terbium (III), and 2.0x10(-4)moll(-1) SDBS. The enhanced fluorescence intensity of the system (DeltaI(f)) showed a good linear relationship with the concentration of GFLX over the range of 5.0x10(-10) to 5.0x10(-8)moll(-1) with a correlation coefficient of 0.9996. The detection limit (3sigma) was determined as 6.0x10(-11)moll(-1). This method has been successfully applied to the determination of GFLX in pharmaceuticals and human urine/serum samples. Compared with most of other methods reported, the rapid and simple procedure proposed in the text offers higher sensitivity, wider linear range, and better stability. The interaction mechanism of the system is also studied by the research of ultraviolet absorption spectra, surface tension, solution polarity and fluorescence polarization.

    ABSTRACT: A simple, rapid and sensitive CE method has been proposed for the determination of gatifloxacin in biological fluid. This method is based on the ECL reaction of gatifloxacin and tris(2,2'-bipyridyl)ruthenium(II) occurred in the end-column detection cell. Under the optimal conditions, gatifloxacin can be assayed within 10 min over the concentration range of 5.0x10(-8)-5.0x10(-6) g/mL with the theoretical plate numbers of 18,000. The intra-day and inter-day precision of the signal intensity and the migration time shows acceptable reproducibility for the analysis of gatifloxacin. The presented method has been successfully applied to determine the concentrations of gatifloxacin in urine and blood samples after clean-up using C(18) SPE column.

    ABSTRACT: A novel method of first derivative synchronous fluorescence was developed for the rapid simultaneous analysis of trace 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OHP), 1-naphthol (1-NAP), 2-naphthol (2-NAP), 9-hydroxyphenanthrene (9-OHPe) and 2-hydroxyfluorene (2-OHFlu) in human urine. Only one single scan was needed for quantitative determination of five compounds simultaneously when Deltalambda=10 nm was chosen. In the optimal experimental conditions, there was a linear relationship between the fluorescence intensity and the concentration of 1-OHP, 1-NAP, 2-NAP, 9-OHPe and 2-OHFlu in the range of 1.75 x 10(-9) to 4.50 x 10(-6) mol L(-1), 3.64 x 10(-8) to 2.20 x 10(-4) mol L(-1), 8.18 x 10(-9) to 1.20 x 10(-4) mol L(-1), 3.26 x 10(-9) to 8.50 x 10(-5) mol L(-1) and 4.88 x 10(-9) to 5.50 x 10(-6) mol L(-1), respectively. The limits of detection (LOD) were found to be 5.25 x 10(-10) mol L(-1) for 1-OHP, 1.10 x 10(-8) mol L(-1) for 1-NAP, 2.46 x 10(-9) mol L(-1) for 2-NAP, 9.77 x 10(-10) mol L(-1) for 9-OHPe and 1.46 x 10(-9) mol L(-1) for 2-OHFlu. The proposed method is reliable, selective and sensitive, and has been used successfully in the determination of traces of 1-OHP, 1-NAP, 2-NAP, 9-OHPe and 2-OHFlu in human urine samples, whose results were in good agreement with those gained by the HPLC method.

    ABSTRACT: A novel co-luminescence system based on the formation of a complex between europium (III) (Eu3+) and gatifloxacin (GFLX) in sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate (SDBS) micelle solution containing lanthanum (III) (La3+) has been developed for the determination of Eu3+. The experimental results show that the complex formed by Eu3+ and GFLX here can emit the characteristic luminescence of Eu3+. With the addition of La3+, the luminescence intensity of the system was enhanced about 7-fold compared with that without La3+. Under the optimal conditions, the luminescence intensity exhibits an excellent linear relationship with Eu3+ concentration in the range of 1.0×10−10–5.0×10−8 mol L−1. The correlation coefficient (r) is 0.9998, and the detection limit (3σ) is 7.0×10−14 mol L−1. A test method with satisfactory accuracy based on this system was applied to determine trace amounts of Eu3+ in rare earth samples. In addition, the detailed luminescence mechanism of this system was investigated by analyzing the ultraviolet absorption spectra, surface tension, fluorescence polarization, quantum yield, and the number of water molecules in the first coordination sphere of the Eu3+ complex.
